Massey Ferguson has introduced the model 9895 Class VIII combine. It has a new red and gray colour scheme with silver model identification. A 12.5 litre Tier 3 diesel engine that delivers 425 horsepower with a power bulge up to 459 horsepower drives the 31.5 inch diameter, 140 inch long rotor. The hydrostatic rotor drive allows the operator a full range of rotor speeds from 200rpm to 1040rpm for the optimum ratio of speed and torque. A helical vane front beater system runs the full width of the feeder house to ensure the incoming crop is evenly fed to the full diameter of the rotor for maximum harvesting capacity.
The 55.4 inch wide feeder house, with four rows of feed chain, keeps the crop moving. A uniquely designed three section concave system with 161 degrees of rotor wrap distributes the separated grain across the full width of the separator pan. The high volume, 13 inch diameter turbine cleaning fan provides even airflow throughout the entire grain cleaning system to ensure a clean grain sample. Concave clearance and fan speed are electronically adjusted from the Console II terminal in the cab for additional operator convenience. The Fieldstar II precision agricultural system is standard equipment on the model 9895 combine. A colour terminal with touch screen technology allows growers to quickly select the combine function to monitor and adjust.
The model 9895's 350 bushel capacity grain tank features the new 'Direct High Volume' unloading system with a 4.5bu/sec unloading rate. The roomy and quiet cab with automatic temperature control offers full header visibility and a smooth ride with the Grammer air ride seat. A multi-function 'Heads Up' monitor system keeps operators informed of combine system performance and ergonomically designed combine controls are within easy reach.
Massey Ferguson header choices include the 3000 series corn heads in six, eight or 12 rows; the 7200 series rigid heads are available in 25, 30 and now 35 foot cutting widths; the 8200 series flex heads are available in 25, 30 and 35 foot cutting widths; and the 5100 series draper heads in 25, 30 and 36 foot cutting widths. The 4200 series pickup head options include a 13 and a 15 foot model and a choice of 14 or 16 foot wide pickup attachments.
